What reviewers are saying:
chapter one this book held my attention. The legends in the book told around
the campfire gave me goose bumps and the supernatural creatures; Necrocritters,
dark hooded guards with swords and red hooded priests added a lot of layers to
this story. Not to mention the Fallen Ones!
how things would play out because there were so many challenges facing Nathan
and his friends. I really enjoyed the climax of the book and could easily see
this book adapted as a movie. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for Nathan
and his friends…but you have to read the book to see if they all make it
terrific! I love your wise-cracking hero, who finds himself thrust into these
bizarre circumstances with no real guide. And I love the set up of the
supernatural world and these well-defined characters. The supernatural conflict
and the relationships that took root here will be able to take you through book
after book. That eerie, spirit realm where everything is gray except for the
people – sound doesn’t behave as it should – and objects are frozen in place,
is really imaginative and creepy. It’s got a strong cinematic feel and it
creates tremendous atmosphere. In short, you’ve done some terrific world
building here that’s highly imaginative and peopled with appealing, interesting
characters we can care about.” ~Reviewer
